WELCOME TO THE CRIMSON CARE COLLABORATIVE (CCC)!
The Crimson Care Collaborative (CCC), Harvard’s first student-faculty collaborative practice, was started in 2009 by Harvard Medical School students, faculty from the Massachusetts General Hospital, and support from the Stoeckle Center.
CCC is a student-faculty collaborative practice started by Harvard Medical School students and the Massachusetts General Hospital Stoeckle Center for Primary Care. CCC is a student-administered evening clinic, where medical students (precepted by faculty members) take care of patients who do not have a primary care doctor. In addition, the practice provides evening urgent-care access to patients of the Internal Medicine Associates (IMA) practice, so that they, too, can avoid unnecessary Emergency Department visits. By building the practice model from the ground up, students were involved in all aspects of operations, financial planning and social services for the practice.
